Top Things To Do In Edinburgh
There are so many fun activities in Edinburgh, whether you're looking for something free to do, things to do with the kids, or a romantic weekend away. In the summer, experience the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and some of the many fun things to do at night. If you're visiting at any other time of the year, Edinburgh is still filled with beautiful nature (and event some wonderful hikes for a bird's eye view of Edinburgh), medieval landmarks, and several other noteworthy attractions. The sights, along with some of the friendliest people in the world, make Edinburgh a destination that will surely leave you in awe for a long time. Here are some of the things you shouldn’t miss when in Edinburgh.
During earlier times, Edinburgh was nicknamed “Athens of the North” by Scottish Enlightenment thinkers due to the abundance of art, literature, science, and philosophy in the city. At present, this is still evident through the world-class cultural institutions that can be found in Edinburgh. You can find out more in our guide to our top picks of museums in Edinburgh.
Remember to always check the museum's bag policy before you visit! While some may have a bag check or offer luggage lockers, it's always best to know before you arrive. If they don't, book convenient luggage storage with us so that you don't miss out.
There are some excellent places to shop in Edinburgh. In fact, there’s a wide and eclectic range of options for those who want to get their retail therapy on. From large brands and upscale department stores to independent boutiques and novelty shops, there are plenty of retail choices to explore.
Ocean Terminal: Located on the waterfront right beside the famous Royal Yacht Britannia, Ocean Terminal is the biggest shopping center in all of Edinburgh. The complex also hosts several restaurants, bars, and even a cinema.
Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop: One of the things that Scotland is known for is high-quality whisky, and perhaps the best place to get a bottle would be at Cadenhead’s Whisky Shop. The shop is one of the first independent bottlers in Scotland (and the last surviving one!), making the product you buy an exceptional one.
Herman Brown: If you're looking for vintage items and antiques, this is the go-to place in Edinburgh. Owner and founder Anna Nicholson travels to different parts of the globe for some rare finds – from vintage clothing to jewelry.

Timberyard: This Scandinavian-themed restaurant is located in a former warehouse and has gradually built its reputation as one of the best places to dine in Edinburgh.
Mary’s Milk Bar: Found in the buzzing area of Grassmarket, this local institution features a range of cold treats with eccentric flavors, such as brandy mince pie-flavored gelato or sweetcorn and black pepper sorbet.
